A beautiful, large, tranquil Victorian home and retreat-like setting in the South Berkeley area, only 2 blocks from Ashby BART. Architecturally colorful and unique, very conveniently located near cafes, bakeries, and the celebrated Berkeley Bowl grocery!

숙소
NOTE: Please read the ENTIRE listing description and house rules before requesting to stay... Reading a hosts' house rules before booking is REQUIRED by Airbnb.


This charming Old Lady, a century old Victorian home, has a colorful interior and is truly a house with character and soul. It is an artistically colorful and inspiring refuge and place to find rejuvenation for your soul! I have several guest rooms in the house, so to see other listings, click on my photo or name to go to my profile and see the others. S

All rooms are single occupancy only to help preserve the quiet environment. (This means only ONE person may stay in each room. )



THE HOUSE AND THE LOCATION:
This house is very conveniently located in the Berkeley-Oakland border region 2 blocks from the South Berkeley (Ashby) BART station, the local subway. This allows you to travel to most any San Francisco Bay Area destination without a car. You can quickly arrive to downtown San Francisco within 30-45 minutes by BART.

Within walking distance of 5 blocks, you can find: several ethnic restaurants (African and Mexican come to mind), 2 cafes, 2 bakeries, La Pena Latin American cultural center, Starry Plough Irish Pub, a low-fee acupuncture clinic, and Berkeley Bowl grocery store, with its celebrated enormous offering of fresh produce. THere is a weekly farmer's market just a few blocks away.
Walk a little farther north, and within 30 minutes or 1 mile you will come to downtown Berkeley, and the University of California at Berkeley, movie theatres and many shops, restaurants, and other attractions such as bookstores, comics/games stores. (Downtown Berkeley is also just one BART stop away.) By walking East, you come to the attractive Elmwood avenue shopping area within ¾ mile, and its shops, restaurants (Indian and Mediterranean among them), movie theatre and Metaphysical bookstore. THe Walkscore rating for my house location is 88 out of a possible 100 for walkability: any higher a rating and you would likely have trouble finding parking. Speaking of parking: there is plenty of 2 hr parking on my street -- Monday thru Friday, 8am to 6pm, there is a 2 hr limit -- but you can find smaller areas of unrestricted parking on my street and nearby.

THE ROOM:
I have several guest rooms available . See photos of them in the listing.

The Kaleidoscopic Room is similar to the Enchanted Lair room in size, and both of these are on the main or 2nd floor of the house. Each features a full size bed, table and chair, dresser, nightstand and bookshelf. Each of those is 12 ft by 12 ft in size. THe Enchanted Lair room has a closet, and the bed is located under a loft which I use to store some things (you would not need to climb up there). It has one long window for northern light. The Kaleidoscopic room has two windows, one facing west to the backyard garden, and has a wardrobe instead of a closet.


You will share the kitchen and bathrooms (one full bath plus one half bath) with up to 2 other guests and myself, though I don’t cook much. I am not vegetarian, and there are no restrictions on what you may cook here. There is wifi and laundry available on site. The main bathroom has a tub with glass tub enclosure: there is also a tiled shower available for you to use if you prefer.

ARCHITECTURE:
Architecturally, this is a colorful and playful house, where you won’t find white or “off white” rooms. The rooms have ten foot high ceilings and attractive moulding. All the original redwood moulding and redwood panel doors remain. The spacious kitchen is orange with a blue countertop and green tile floor, featuring an antique Wedgewood stove. For those staying 4 weeks or less, there are basic staples for you to use for your cooking. (For those staying longer, please purchase your own kitchen staples).


BACKYARD:
Also feel free to enjoy the backyard garden, perhaps visiting the bunnies Moonstone, Flopsy and Cinnamon at "Bunny Castle". Or sit by the pond with running water, or enjoy some quiet time in the "Meditation Hut" and fern garden area in the backyard.

CLEANING: The common areas of the house are cleaned once a week. Apart from this, guests are required to clean up after themselves when using common areas (see house rules for more info). Note that my once a week cleaning cannot keep the common areas spotless 24/7, and I'm not able to clean the house every day, much less several times a day, so the guests most suited for my house are those who understand this.

PARKING:
street parking is available, mostly limited to 2 hrs on weekdays, but there are unrestricted parking areas also within 1-2 blocks.

BICYCLE:
I have a bicycle available for guest use with the payment of an additional security deposit to cover its potential loss.

HOUSE RULES:
Please read house rules below before booking a reservation, to make sure you will be comfortable with the setting. I ask that prospective guests fill out a complete profile including photo, as well as verified email and phone number.

AREA SAFETY:
Prospective guests often ask about area safety. Guests have said they felt safe in the area. Neither I nor any renter/guest has been robbed or accosted in the 12 years I have lived here. Apart from stating such facts, I cannot answer general questions about "how safe" the area is, or "will I be safe doing X", any more than I could answer a question about how likely you are to get hit by a car when walking around my neighborhood. Safety is both subjective and relative, and is also dependent upon use of common sense, such as being observant of one's surroundings, and not walking down the street while talking on the phone and advertising one's expensive electronics. Robberies do occur around the Ashby BART area, and throughout Oakland and Berkeley. No area is completely safe.

This house has been a community house of one kind or another for over 40 years, and I have over 14 years experience in renting rooms in my house and learning how to create a tranquil environment for others to enjoy. It's a large house, and you won't feel crowded here: it's a great place to stay if you like your privacy and enjoy your independence.

I welcome you to come enjoy a tranquil retreat from the workaday world and rekindle your sense of delight and enchantment!

The immediate area is a one-block long very quiet residential neighborhood of mostly single family homes, but we are also one block away from a main street which has several cafes and restaurants, and we are walking distance from downtown Berkeley and the UC Campus.

저는 이른 음악과 신성한 보컬 음악을 즐기며, 열렬한 요가 수행자입니다. 저는 또한 이곳을 이용할 수 있어서 다행인 많은 베이 지역 공원에서 장거리 산책을 하며 시간을 보냅니다. 저는 아름다운 공간을 만드는 것을 좋아합니다. 그리고 창의적으로 그렇게 할 수 있는 기회를 갖는 것은 제가 집 디자인에서 전문적인 삶을 영위할 수 있는 프로젝트 중 하나입니다. 내 집처럼 더 아름답고 감동적인 공간을 만드는 데 많은 시간을 할애했는데, 다른 사람들이 이 공간을 이용할 수 있게 해줘서 감사해요!

저는 내성적이고 시각예술가, 작가, 책 애호가이며, 서점을 둘러보거나, 집에서 좋은 이야기의 매혹적인 세계나 설득력 있는 미스터리 북에 몰입하거나, 펜 스케치와 작은 수채화 또는 아크릴화를 그리거나, 미스터리 소설을 작업하는 데 많은 시간을 보냅니다.

샌프란시스코 베이 지역은 세계에서 가장 부유한 정신적 중심지 중 하나이며, 이곳에서 다양한 가르침, 수련 센터, 워크숍을 즐길 수 있습니다. 이와 관련해 저희는 매우 다행입니다. 제 영적 경로에서는 상상력과 창의성의 역할이 매우 중요하며, 제가 연습하는 명상의 유형은 비파사나보다 음악/헌신적인 명상입니다. 불교 수련회와 워크숍에 수시로 참석합니다.

숙박 중 게스트와의 교류

I like to talk with guests when they arrive, but I am a pretty private person as well as someone needing large blocks of private time for creative projects, so after I get home from work I tend to spend time alone. I also am out a lot on weekends. I tend to chat with guests when I them around...if you like interacting with others, there is always more than one guest at the house and you are likely to be able to get to know other people from around the world.
